Prize money

does anyone know what is the prize money distribution and total sum in fed cup this year?

The only thing I could find the fed cup site is that zonal competitions don't recevie prize money.
But what about the world groups?

Prize Money shall be distributed to the competing Nations in accordance with a
scale agreed by the Board of Directors in consultation with the Fed Cup
Committee and based on decisions taken by a General Meeting.

(a) There will be no prize money in the Zone Group Events.
(b) The ITF will pay 50% (fifty per cent) of the actual economy travelling costs
incurred by all teams for a maximum of four (4) players and one (1)

(c) Each Host Nation will, in addition, receive a grant up to a maximum of

I just got an e-mail from the communications officer of the Fed Cup saying:
Quote:
The total Fed Cup prize money is $1.75 million
but I have no idea how it is distributed etc.
too bad they don't write these details in the fed cup site

By the way, according to the communications officer the total Davis Cup prize money is US$8.5 million

quite a big difference ....

No much money for players. Ask Paola Suarez and her relationship with the Argentinian Tennis Federation.

I think there should not be money prize except for the traveling costs.

tennis players make a lot of money already and in davis cup as well as fed cup the players should play for the honor of their country...

Well i guess that is too idealistic

Many of the lower ranked players don't make so much money...I definitely think they should be paid...They are after all taking a week out of their schedule when they could be earning ranking points.
